Make-up was actually not my thing. I grew up without knowing much about it and when I went to college, my boyfriend who is now my husband doesn’t really mind if I wear anything on my face or not. He will always tell me, just like maybe any other boyfriends, “maganda ka na kahit walang make-up” (you are pretty already even without make-up). Even when I started working in an office, I rarely use lipstick, and my compact powder was seldom used.Imagine my surprise when I learned that my soon-to-be in laws were the opposite...

We’ve tried eating before in a different Mann Hann branch. Our first time was in Trinoma and we were only 4 then. Last night was more special since the family is more complete. It was also the birthday of one of my sisters-in-law. You’ll realize how fun a big family can be during these moments, when you dine out with the whole gang. Picking Mann Hann at SM Fairview to celebrate a special night with the family was a great decision. We were there 7:00PM and the whole row of seats was assigned to us, enough for everyone of us...

One of the highlights of my previous year was definitely this one, the first blogger’s Christmas Party I’ve attended. It was Mommy Bloggers Philippines’ first Christmas party and after a month of preparation, thanks to my co-blogger’s support especially Louisa of ArtOfBeingAMom.com and Joy of JoyGurtiza.com, the event turned out to be a successful one. The Christmas Party was held last December 5, at Spaces by Babyland. It was on the 2nd floor of the store building, an intimate space where more than 30 moms gathered,...

We were so happy when we found out that Furry Tails will be having another branch in one of the nearest malls from our home, at Ayala Fairview Terraces. We have always brought our shih tzu at Furry Tails SM Fairview but they had recently moved to a smaller space in another location but in the same mall. We haven’t seen the changes in their branch in SM Fairview but I think we will be going more often in their FT branch. We usually visit FT more often because there is lesser crowd there, more comfort rooms and of course, new.Furry...

If there’s one thing the four of us always agree about, it will be to hang-out for an ice cream treat. Ice cream always makes us feel special, no matter what the weather is or how happy or sad we are. Baskin-Robbins in Fairview Terraces is an outdoor ice cream parlor which never fails to call our attention whenever we pass by. Its pink theme color is my daughter’s favorite and mine too. Whenever I see it, I can’t help remember my bubblegum chapstick, my daughters’ pink dresses, and cotton candies. All the good things...

I got to watch only one movie from MMFF this year (Vic Sotto’s My Big Bossing Adventures). We were supposed to watch Vice Ganda’s movie because we’ve watched Vice’s movies before. My cousin Iris told me that Vice’s Film Fest entry’s plot is not good but it’s hilarious so we planned to watch it on the first day of the year. But lo, there were only 2 seats left when we checked on Sureseats. We had to pick another movie because this will be our last chance to watch a movie together. There were 10...

Who doesn’t love Mrs. Fields?! Their cookies are heavenly, brownies are chewy and the muffins are sweet and flavorful. When we are tight on budget, just a glimpse of their pretty packed goodies and cute canisters will be enough to make my day.So how was I able to get free treats on my favorite bakeshop? Through ZAP!I’ve seen this promo of ZAP from a feature from Mommy Bloggers Philippines. You just register an account online at ZAP and voila! you can use that account to get 5% cash back whenever you buy on their partner...

This year’s Disney On Ice – Dare To Dream is a dream come true for me. I’ve always been a fan of Disney Princesses and I’ve always wished to see all of them skating. Rapunzel is my favorite princess too and whenever my daughters want to watch Tangled, I always willingly watch with them at home. Yesterday, Christmas Day, my husband indulged us to go to Disney On Ice at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao despite the never-ending traffic. After a quick visit to my father’s house, we went to Cubao without having...
